Stanley “Buzz” Walter Vallom
March 1, 1933 – June 19, 2022
Peacefully at the Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg in his 89th year. Beloved husband of Sylvia Vallom (nee Hall), a wonderful father to sons Craig Vallom (Mariola (late)), Chris Vallom (Sue) and daughter Laura Wilson (Michael). Proud Papa to Liam, Summer, Riley and Trevor, as well as granddogs Lucy, Roxie and Flea – his biggest fans! Buzz worked as an electrician for the Board of Education until his retirement in 1998. He was also the family chef and made many wonderful holiday meals over the years. He liked to sit down and ‘tickle the ivories’ every now and again, playing old favorites like September Song and Spanish Eyes. He dressed in style, often the best dressed man in the room. Buzz was also ‘King of the Road’, an excellent driver who travelled across Canada and the US, with trailer and family in tow, and then for many years down to Sanibel Florida and back with his trusty navigator Sylvia by his side. In his 70’s he spread his wings and travelled the globe with Sylvia, along with other family and friends, to far off places such as India, Russia, Europe and China. Most of all Buzz was a quiet and generous man with a heart of gold who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
